I enjoy all periods of the Dead, and try to savor what is good with each period ; but I have to say I enjoy the , say pre 80's stuff , more, think it is "better," but would be missing lots of good stuff that is unique to those later periods .
It is sort of like some people only like the famous Dylan's 60's , albums ( usually throw in "Blood on the Tracks") . Yes, this was his best period, but you would also be missing some very worthwhile music ( Infidels, Oh Mercy, TOOM, for example ).

agreed. In my opinion musically the band was the best in the 70's. I think it's obvious that the mid 80's and the last few years were low points but there's still some great stuff in there too.I just happen to think 89-91 were very strong years for the band.
